I have had carpal tunnel syndrome in my hands this week, when the nerve in the pith of your palm, through thumb and index, is pinched, and swells, inside the wrist ligament tunnel.
In a few days, the inflammation declared itself in the other wrist. It's usually the case with CTS, it's rare that a person will have problems in only one had.
- As soon as one hand is injured, the other tends to seize up and stop functioning as badly as the first one, within a week or so.
Why and how does a nervous injury such as CTS radiate symmetrically through the nervous system, differently from a sprain or a contusion?
What other factors in neuroscience demonstrate nervous symmetry, related to the CTS symmetry problem?
